In case someone is trying to debug this, here's what I can glean from
the backtrace:

This seems to imply that we are trying to update a non-leaf window,
something that should never happen.  There's no Lisp-level backtrace,
so it's hard to tell what Lisp called force-window-update, and how the
window in question became non-leaf, but maybe some crazy Lisp hook
switched windows behind redisplay's back or something.
